I was one of three featured artists at Katharine Butler Gallery before Christmas. The show ran from Nov. 20th to Dec. 12th in Sarasota. My show is a series of beach paintings I've done both in Florida and the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I've really enjoyed painting the beach over the last year. The water and light are different, and it's always nice to find a new challenge. I spent a few days painting on Anna Maria Island when I went down for the opening last week, and I'm looking forward to doing oils from the pastel studies I brought home.
